    Care to porvide the text to that end?
    Loving vs Virginia clearly states that marriage is a fight of man. That means the state can not discriminate based on race. Whatever point you trying to make is moot.

    I have to say, the very notion that someone would consider the biracial heritage of a person to be a handicap that might need the interjection of the state, in order to protect the welfare of a child born with such a heritage, is so abhorrent to me it makes me physically recoil and shiver slightly ...

    Under what argument is marriage -- a right -- excluded from control by this compelling state interest?

    You people are going to have to make up your mind -- all this subjectivity is hard to follow.
    The welfare of a child is a compelling state interest, but the Supreme Court has found that interest not compelling enough to prevent interracial couples the right to marry.
